Today I was watching "Alaska State Troopers" on the NatGeo channel. They were filming a bit about fishing in Dutch Harbor and the cameraman (or woman) panned around to take in the bald eagles. What beautiful birds the are. And my, what BIG birds they are.
Big enough, in fact, to not be at all intimidated by us mere humans.
The trooper who was being interview was telling a story of how his son had been attacked by the stately birds and now, the elementary school children had to be escorted from one building to the next for fear of being swooped down upon and carried off by bald eagles.
